Here's the black and white pattern-adorned version. I loved the patterns - klevclef's, sfdetroiter's, and steverolston's! Was planning to do a colored version and putting the two side-by-side and then I got lazy. Erk.
I'm pretty well done uploading stuff I made PRE-hitRECord. Don't know if anyone can do anything with these oldies but they may as well be here.
I just really wanted to draw some hair.
Clouds by sfdetroiter and One Lesson I Refuse To Learn by OhPattyG REmixed. might make a nice background for further REmixes.
...here's an orchestral suite of musical themes inspired by several images form the Shadow Caste collaboration. I will reference them and perhaps you can tell which goes with which. This was a lot of fun, to make this... looking forward to dong more.
....there's one record I can't find, the one about Umbreo. But yeah... that idea inspired the last movement especially.

Inspired by ppeppina's beautiful song "Hetki". As soon as I heard this song, I just had to make an animation for it.
Here are ppeppina's lyrics - in Finnish and in English
On elämä kummallista tosiaan - Life is very strange indeed
Täällä yksi yössä laulaa vaan - Here this one is just singing
Vaikka pitäis mennä nukkumaan - Even though it's time to sleep
Mut aika on huijari, pelkkä haamu - But time is a cheater, only a ghost
Tääl voi olla yö, mut tuol jossain on aamu - It might be a night here, but somewhere it's morning
Siellä heräilen parhaillaan - I'm just about to wake up there
Nää sävelet ilmassa soi yksinään - these melodies fly alone in the air
Ei niistä kiinnostu yksikään - and absolutely no one cares
Kuluvat sekunnit mua säestää - the passing seconds are accompaning me
Tää hetki on mun, jo nukkuvat muut - This moment is mine, others already sleep
Talo ja taivas ja piha ja puut - The house and the sky and the yard and the trees
En vois pyytää enempää - I couldn't ask for more
Mut hetken kestää hetki vaan - But a moment lasts only for a moment
Se on ohi ennen kuin huomaatkaan - It's gone before you know it

This is the first time I've used any form of photo editing software, so I tried my best. But this is sorta the idea I had when I made the "what caste" image. :)
I'm not kinda photoshop person (a low tech person , in fact) and I really wanna try this with Acrylic color (which I have just taken class.)
So here is the result :)
First time I collaborate with others, so much fun !
p.s. I'm not gonna say it but I just saw my mistake - -****
rotoscoping! :D first time trying it, biiig project planned for blbest's "Wandering Hands" dialogue tale. this is the start. I really like uploading unfinished animations.
anyway, I'm probably gonna cut some of the interum frames, both because the result is slower than I want, and also because it takes sooo looooong. although I might have been a bit overexcited about the shading.
in the end, I wanted the "wandering hands" to be this perspective, animated, and the other participant to be live action, with little animated icons of the dialogue bopping around the face. it might work. :D
I'd like it if someone could record that side of the conversation? the way I picture it in my head is just as a conversation over coffee, but it could be anything. <3
Here is a vocal mix I did for the collage song collab. I gathered some great vocal contributions from the collab that i felt went well with the track and together. Hope you enjoy it!
The warm hands took the cold hands.
The two hearts were content.
I was inspired, in part, by Marke's Bad Advice collab. I'm not an artist in any way, s...
This is an idea I'm trying out. I've chosen a few text records that I thought were really great and have provided more specific feedback on what I think is working and what changes I think could possibly help it grow. These are kind of like reRECs because I want to draw people's attention to these records, but they're a little bit more in depth. For example, this record is roughly a minute longer than my reRECs this week; but whereas my reRECs contained 9 records, this contains only 4. So the commentary for each record is significantly longer.
I was inspired to do this because since joining the site I've heard members talk about their desire to hear more constructive feedback on their work. So I started this to see if we could perhaps foster that. I focused on text records because of my experience with text and because it seems that a lot of the people asking for feedback are writers.
It may work, it may not, but you never know until you try!
This is my first version of a poster idea for the Shadows collab, I chose some of my favorite images added to the collab, I'll make a second version with some other fantastic records soon!!
Here's a still frame of the end bumper that I'm working on for my Tiny Animation "Hetki - A Moment (A Tiny Animation)"
I figure this still can be used by others just like I used yes-you-am's papercut hitRECord logo to create it.
Yes, the woman in the picture is me. Yes, I adorned myself in make up and attired my body to what I thought would make me look beautiful.
But beauty does NOT come on the outside, beauty is something inside the soles of our body. Something that our fingers nor eyes will never get to touch or see.
False beauty should not be shown like what I portray in this picture. Beauty should come from within ourselves, not by what we can buy to make ourselves appear beautiful.
Beautiful, Ha. Such a strong word we all use these days to categorize what false beauty is.
Even though this picture is more than 5 years old, the reason I took it was for this very reason. Not because of or for any other reason.
I thought this would fit-in here. There's some bass tones that computer speakers might not pickup.
I saw this "Unlikely Disasters" collab and was so inspired! What an awesome idea. Anyway, I hope you enjoy the terror these animals are experiencing.. :)
So this my first illustration. A little elementary I know but an ode to my friend Joab, his great text, his new baby Zoe and the shadow beings!
I made the sad emotions come from the gloams stuck on the perfect ceiling in the un-natural iight all day long. While the sweet babe wrecks havoc on the floor (as we know they do) -this is midday in my illusration-and you can see the torture yet fun of the shadow beings during their usual time in Umbra.
I focused on the ceiling b/c I believe Joab's text does the same for me. Anyway hope ya like, if not- I really enjoyed trying my hand at illustrating and I'm putting it in the collabs!

(The image flop was necessary because I don't have the other side of the van done yet!)
Here's a little animation video I made using TheWinterWild's "Still Water Disaster" for the Unlikely Disasters collaboration. This is my first time animating anything.
I think some nice sound effects of water and ship creakings would add a nice effect. A VO of the original's subtitle would be pretty cool too.

Based on a true story.
- Met girl while she ran away from a drunk guy on the streets of Madrid
- Switched emails and hung out for a couple nights
- 2 days later she went to her country a and I went to my country (different continents)
- Somehow stayed in touched but both lived their separate lives
- 7 years later a relationship blossomed.
When I feel the light upon me
Ray of sunshine gliding through
The air smells wonderfully blue
I caress the darkest part of you.
Sometime I think of you
Like a feather thinks of it's bird
I am not blind, this is my call
Scattered kisses in lipstick, my love.
I know that you told me to hold you
But holding you is not enough
You are so fragile, even when you're tough
I will protect you.
Many years ago we found it
like all good things, we awaited
water pouring, chilly winters
In the end, it was meant...
"Excuse me, miss, have I seen you somewhere before?"
"In your dreams..."
"Last Tuesday's or Friday's?"
"King Arthur's Court or the gro...
I wrote and recorded a rap verse for the Automator's Collage Song. Starts at 22 sec. Enjoy!
Little Red Riding Hood, now in shy and sassy. :D
I've got the dress and cape as seperate bits, I'll upload a full sheet with those seperate from the doll in just a moment. (all pluralised)
this is also now a colouring book, at least until my fingers uncramp. >_o
The Labores Solis is a total eclipse of the sun. The only time where all shadows on earth become one. What significance this event has I don't know, but would love to hear some ideas!
The scattering look of the shadows was inspired by ThadicalRadical's The Chayeari shadow.
Love artanon wolf paper doll so I remix that and added a companion little red riding hood character. Done this originally as vector graphic so I can create various poses and expression later.
My name is bloemy ( Marlene really :) ) and I take photos ,photo edit , remix , video edit and draw a bit . I don't write , sing or juggle..challenge me please. <3
STEMS can be found in the results :)
I've been wanting to cover a song for The Morning Hollows' HitRECord Covers Collab forever since I mostly record song covers on my tumblr and that's what got me into recording music in the first place. I never could decide on a song to cover, but I finally listened to tonguecutsparrow's song yesterday and decided to try it. Since his song is already awesome, I just did this one quickly and had some fun with a few garageband effects, so don't take it too seriously :)
For the bad advice collab: when it rains, it pours---> when it rains, it won't last forever...
Maybe someone already thought of this one, but I couldn't find it...
An Open letter to Hitrecord and Thanks:

Anne gave me a challenge yesterday, she told me that I have to make a new City Autopsy of my city: Managua, Nicaragua, but this time I added in the picture some elements that I found in the streets and also around my house and in my backyard (yeah, where the ghost live haha), so I am making a small explanation of the things that you can see in my picture (I added some things that I love and that I have in my room too):
1. A piece of the local newspaper.
2. Some leaves of the tree that is in front of my house.
3. A mango: a fruit that is very common in my country, I have a Mango tree in my backyard!
4. A note that always remind me that I LOVE HITRECORD!
5. A Happy Birthday note that somebody gave me in my last birthday!
6. One of my cats, this one is made of wood, and is one of my favorites of my collection of cats. I think that I bought this one in Chile.
7. A small purple flower from another tree in my backyard.
8. Some kind of red seed or acorn that I found in the street outside my house.
9. A picture of me and my mom when I was a little baby.
10. My favorite lipgloss (strawberry flavor) :)
11. Some Nicaraguan coins, by the way, I found the gold one outside my house! :)
12. My Hitrecord notepad party, that GRL sent me in January!
13. My watch, This is the last gift that my grandma gave to me before she died.
14. Some hair clips (I have a lot of them in different colors)

So GabyVaughan challenged me to make a drawing for her dialogue What do you want sir? I have to admit it's very primitive and I didn't use the best of software, and may have been better off scanning my original drawing. But here it is.
I think it's a good start.
I haven't had much time to work on this so there hasn't been many changes. Nothing more than eq tweaking. I got rid of the glitch effect on the drums towards the end that pamagotchi rightly disapproved of. I would like to request of pamagotchi perhaps to rerecord the vocals. Maybe two new versions. Not necesarly completely different versions. I would just like to hear the different inflections that are inherent when working on something and then returning to it later on. If you could do one one day and another someother day. I will upload an instrumental track as well.
Please come a little closer Dear

I wrote a song with my 'Do You Hear ' Dialogue Tale as Lyric - Matt has made an intriguing observation that it would be interesting if anyone wanted to sing the male half of the conversation ? : )
-DO YOU HEAR ME?
-I HATE REPEATING MYSELF
-IF YOU'D JUST LISTEN I WOULDN'T HAVE TO
-NO.YOU'RE ALWAYS TAPPING OR TYPING ON SOMETHING
-IF IT WAS IMPORTANT I WOULD HEAR YOU
-CALM DOWN.LOOK I HEARD YOU OKAY?
YEAH. BUT DO YOU HEAR YOURSELF?
Mrs. Tibbs...here is the result of your challenge...I hope you like it...I cleaned up the pic some and added a few elements of my own while staying true to your design...
Amber challenged me to make another Monster's remix, so I decide to make something different, I hope you all like this, especially Amber, I made the monster's family tree, with my favorite characters!!!
and friends in low ones. :)
I've been meaning to add to the Shadow Collab and the Tiny Stories.
Here's trying to hit two birds with one stone - although I think I just grazed one and the other is in denial about being a bird in the first place. Sigh. Damn metaphors.
xanlee asked for a paper cut for her tiny story "The Broken Hearted Octopus"
I hope you like it xanlee :D
Take a good look at my face because I look away from you, bask in every single and last detail of my structure. Observe as I am only half a face, an unfinished project.
Someday, I will be finished and someday I will become a face you will never forget.
I thought it was important for this old drawing of mine to remain unfinished. Thought the face alone held more mystery to the drawing than to have it as yet another finished piece of art. This was drawn somewhere in late 04.
megancarnes challenged me to make a record without the piano, so here it is! i'm also hoping to record something in the future using music i find on the site, but that requires lots of searching and i'm kiiiiinda lazy.
As the air sings sweet songs to you,
close your eyes and feel it move through you.
sorry for the background noises, i always fidget too much when i'm singing my ooo's.
oh, and there's lots of room for remixing seeing how there are no actual instruments in this track at all, so remix awayyyy! you can ask me for stems if you'd like, but for now, i'm going to bed.
Here is the instrumental I remixed together using "Dusty Drums by Sas 2" and a synth organ.
